Colchester United boss Tony Humes does not expect midfield pair Marcus Bean and Dominic Vose to stay at the club.
Bean, 30, has not played since August, while 20-year-old Vose last featured in mid-September, although there has yet to be interest in either player.
"We've had discussions and if there's an opportunity for them to move on, they will do so," Humes told BBC Essex.
Winger Vose arrived at the League One side in 2013 from Barnet and has featured 35 times.
Bean, who has played 73 games for Colchester, started his career at QPR and had spells at Swansea, Blackpool and Rotherham, before making 168 appearances for Brentford until he left for the U's in 2012.
